Promotion through Blog commentings

April 23rd, 2010

Leaving comments on other blogs is one of the most efficient ways to
promote your own blog, and to network with fellow readers and blog
owners.

Given the rise of blog spam, however, getting your comments approved
is not as easy as it sounds. Below you’ll find 10 ways to get your
comments blocked or deleted (so yeah, avoid them if you can).

1. Use a keyword as your name

The field “Name” on the comment form refers to your name. It doesn’t
refer to your blog name, and it certainly doesn’t refer to keyword you
are trying to optimize for. Writing something like “John Doe –
CarsBlog.com” is fine for most blog owners, but “Cheap Car Parts” would
flag you as spam from miles away.

2. Use sensitive keywords in your comment

Even if you comment is a legitimate one, you should avoid using
sensitive keywords like viagra, loans, and blackjack,
because the spam filter of the blog will probably block your comment.

3. Use HTML to make your comment stand out

Sure, you want to make sure that people will read your comment and
visit your blog after that, but don’t try to achieve that by using the
bold or italic typefaces throughout your comment.

4. Write in capital letters

The same is true for writing in CAPITAL LETTERS. The analogy for this
would be people trying to have a nice conversation while you come
screaming at them with your thoughts on the issue. The blog owner will
probably just delete your comment.

5. Write a one-line comment

Maybe you are in a hurry, maybe you just want to get a link back to
your blog. Either way, if all you write is “Great post!” or “I will
certainly try to use that information!”, there are good chances that
your comment will be deleted.

6. Write a comment before reading the post

If it becomes clear to the blog owner that you wrote your comment
without even reading or understanding his post, he’ll probably just
delete it. Even if he approves your comment you’ll look a bit stupid, so
make sure to read the post before commenting.

7. Include a link to a dubious page in your comment

Including a link to a related post inside your comment is usually
fine. However, you should clarify where the link is pointing to. If the
blog owner gets suspicious about the link he’ll probably just delete the
whole comment to be on the safe side.

8. Include a second link to your site at the end of your
comment

Most blog platforms allow you to include the URL of your website when
leaving a comment, and that URL will be used to link your name to your
site. Some people, however, like to reinforce that by signing-off their
comments with their name and with a second link to their sites. Needless
to say this practice makes the comment look spammy.

9. Use foul language in your comment

Expressing your opinion is fine, but don’t include foul language in
your comment, even if you are upset or annoyed by something in the post.
This is one of the quickest ways to get your comment deleted.

10. Attack the author or other commenters

Criticism is fine, and even appreciated by most bloggers. Personal
attacks and confrontations, however, will only make you sound like a
troll, reducing the chances of getting your comments approved.

Vietnam Adventure Tours

April 5th, 2010

Vietnam is the easternmost country located on
the Indochina Peninsula in the Southeast Asian region and has a rich
legacy of historical locations, spectacular beaches, natural and lush
countryside, and the lively and ever bustling cities. Vietnam has a lot
to offer for all types of travelers and tourists, be it adventurous or
otherwise.

One of the important and historical places to visit in Vietnam is
the Cu Chi tunnels located at the outskirts of Ho
Chi Minh City
, formerly known as Saigon. Cu Chi tunnels are a
complex network of underground tunnels that were strategically used by
the Vietnam armed forces during war times, especially during Tet
Offensive. A video presentation before the actual tunnel tour
emphasizes the strategic mastery of the tunnels. The actual crawling
tour of the tunnels, though seems easy at start, becomes difficult due
to inadequate natural light and the unknowing ascents and descents of
the tunnel. But at the end of this walk through the underground
ravines, you will know more about the conflict that took place in
Vietnam and respect it.

Another adventurous spot is Vietnam’s highest peak, Mount
Fansipan
, which is located in a town called Sapa in Northwest
Vietnam. You can travel by train from Hanoi to Lao Cai and either take a
train to uphill Sapa or go biking. On your way to Sapa, you will
encounter several tiny villages having great cultural importance and
people belonging to traditionally rich tribes. All the way, you are in
the midst of picturesque locations, splendid natural vegetation, paddy
fields, mountain terrains and scenic water falls which make your biking
ride pleasant and challenging. This entire journey lasts for around
eight days but leaves you with ever lasting memories.

If you are interested in marine adventures, then Phu Quoc
Island
is the best place to be. Its warm turquoise waters make
it a pleasant viewing experience but the fantastic scuba diving and
snorkeling experience is beyond imagination. You can also avail of
beach massaging and other such services if you wish to. Such diverse
destinations make Vietnam one of the best places to be.
